BIOS needs resetting

Hi @houtxsnoopy,

 

Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community! I came across your post and wanted to assist you. I understand you are having issues with the update on your HP notebook. Don't worry as I have a few suggestions which should help you resolve this issue.

 

To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details: 

Could you provide me with the exact model of the PC? Use this link to find it:  https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c03754824  (Ensure you do not share any of your personal information such as serial, phone number, email ID, etc...).

Did you try to recover Bios?

 

Start with a hard reset to release any excessive static on the PC: 

  • If Windows is open, click Start and then Shutdown. 

  • If Windows is not open and the computer has power, press and hold the power button on the computer until the computer shuts off. 

  • With the power off, disconnect the power cord from the back of the computer.

  • With the power off and the power cord disconnected, press the power button on the computer for 5 seconds. The power light indicator on or near the power button might turn on briefly but then go out. 

  • Reconnect the power cord and turn on the power. 

I would suggest here is to save the latest Bios update on a flash drive. 

 

Attempt to reset or recover the existing BIOS (if the recent update was interrupted):  Click here

 

Step 1: Verify the current BIOS version installed and the correct ROM Family SSID for your PC 

Step 2: Find the BIOS updates 

Step 3: Download and install the BIOS update

If you have followed the steps to reset the Bios and still having the issue, I would suggest the next step would be to contact our HP phone support for available service related options.
